Trees, shrubs, and bushes - they all have woody stems. So, What's the difference between them and my family? The difference is in our size. Remember, my family, American chestnut trees, can be as much as 100 feet tall.

The trunk itself could be as much as 8 feet in diameter. The record-holder is a family member in North Carolina, whose huge trunk measures 17 feet across.
